Help the Wild Brown Trout on the Chattahoochee

Georgia TU Embrace a Stream Project consider giving support to this great project started by the Upper Chattahoochee and Oconee River Chapters.

This EAS program, however, is something larger. There are many feeder streams to the Chattahoochee that need our attention, we're hoping to use Crayfish Creek as a catalyst to a broader cleanup initiative.

Welcome to the Georgia Council of Trout Unlimited, part of a national network of grassroots volunteers dedicated to trout and salmon conservation. Georgia TU is devoted to conserving, protecting, restoring, and sustaining Georgia’s trout fisheries. All anglers and those interested in protecting our waters are welcome.
